Matrix barcode use with BlackBerry

I'm trying to enhance the capabilities of a system I'm developing by adding a "scanning" feature. Initially I was going to look into using OCR to do license plate recognition, but then I thought a simpler idea would be to use matrix barcodes. I've never worked with these before so I'm not sure how to (a) create them, and (b) read and process them using the BlackBerry's camera.

Has anyone had experience working with such a thing? The idea behind this is for vehicle inventory management for my client. The vehicles would have a matrix barcode sticker on the inside of one of the windows and the maintenance team would "scan" in the vehicle using their BlackBerry.
